Been going to the local nail salon over the last few years. Lovely Asian ladies. One does my hair the other an occasional pedicure. The price is right. 

I always feel somewhat like I’m in a Seinfeld episode with Elaine though. Chatter chatter away in Vietnamese… giggle and giggle. Chatter and pointing. 

“So what we do today with hair?” Kim asks…

“Just roots,” I reply… fluff, fluffing my  hair…

“We gossip about you today,” Kim says…”you have very nice hair, full of body and wave, FOR SOMEONE YOUR AGE.” 

“Oh thank you,” I reply in a small voice.

Ten minutes later Mimi is finishing my pedicure and massaging my calves. 

“You have good muscle, FOR SOMEONE YOUR AGE, ” she remarks. 

“Wow,” I’m thinking not sure what to reply…

“You want eyebrow wax today?” Mimi asks in a tone hustling for business. 

“If you wax eyebrows, I will have the highest forehead in town. There isn’t much left there, FOR MY AGE,” I blurted out. “I’ll need to have new ones tattooed on.”

Giggle, giggle…

Happy birthday to me.
